A handmade medal of St. John of the Cross. I design, carve, and cast the medals myself (see the last 3 photos for the process). The medals are made of lead-free pewter and have designs on both sides. The pendant comes with a jump ring (see photo 1), so it can easily be attached to any chain you have. This listing is for the pendant alone, but it does come with a split ring so it can also be used on a key chain (see photo of packaging). Each medal comes in a felt jewelry pouch with a history card that states:

"“The Dark Night of the Soul,” a poem by St. John of the Cross, is about both the stages of contemplative prayer (moving from alienation from God to unification) and more generally about going through a period of suffering (for 9 months John was imprisoned, allowed to see light for only a few moments a day...) and ultimately emerging whole and enlightened. This medal, then, is meant as a reminder of hope to anyone who has gone through or is going through a period of alienation, depression, or grief, through a dark night. The medal, handmade at In the Company of Saints, depicts John at the moment he emerged from the dark night of the soul into the light."
